Florida State, Cal State Fullerton, LSU, and Virginia round out the top five.

In other college baseball polls, the Gamecocks find themselves No. 3 in the Baseball America poll, and No. 4 in the Perfect Game poll.
The Gamecocks (10-0, 0-0 SEC) have started strong this season with an undefeated record, their strongest start since 2005 when they also began that season with 10 straight wins without a loss.
